District Chief Executive for Bongo, Alexis Adugdaa Ayamdor, has rejected a three-unit classroom block at Nayorigo because the contractor failed to design the building to be disability-friendly. According to the Bongo DCE, the assembly would only accept projects that were disability-friendly. He therefore advised the construction firm, Robert Aboor’s Enterprise, which is Bongo-based to design rambles within the project which costs 96,682.32 Ghana cedis and funded from the District Development Facility (DDF).
Mr. Ayamdor also tasked the contractor to add to the classrooms, a urinal and a toilet facility and make them accessible to persons with disabilities. He later issued a strong warning to contractors that the Bongo district assembly would not accept any project that failed to consider disability-friendly designs.
He however accepted two other projects at separate functions at Gorogo –Soe, Zorko-Atenseka and Nayorigo all in the Bongo District. They were a 6.3 kilometres spot improvement of the Gorogo–Soe feeder road executed by Lampoher Engineering Company Limited and valued at 297,716.13 Ghana cedis with funding from the Ghana Social Opportunity Project (GSOP) as well as a three-unit class room block with its ancillary facilities at Zorko-Atenseka by Al-Aras Enterprise, a Bolgatanga based firm valued at 96,902.23 Ghana cedis with funding from the District Development Facility (DDF).
Mr Ayamdor further warned that the Bongo district Assembly would not tolerate any contractor who does shoddy work, adding that value for money is one of the cardinal principles of this government and his Assembly will not hesitate to blacklist any contractor whose work does not meet specifications, standards and schedule.
